salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
Big fan of the creamed onions. Another
suggestion(what I do)is add sharp chedder cheese to the sauce while it is thickening the after I pour the sauce over the onions I top it with a Ritz Cracker and butter topping, and bake for about 35min. This is a lot richer than your recipe,so some people may not like it.
Way too much watery sauce for the amount of onions called for. I'd use half the amount of liquid and maybe some dehydrated onion bits to give the sauce some flavor in addition to the salt and pepper to taste.
This was excellent!! The last time I had creamed onions, they were frozen! This was way better and much tastier.
Here is what I did: Bring the water to a boil, and drop your onions in, skins and all, let them boil for 1-2 min., drain them. Then, you cut them, by doing it this way, it is much easier.
Far as the white sauce goes, equal amounts of butter and flour, combine the milk with the cooking water. I did it a cup at a time. 1 C. of cooking water mixed with 1 C. of milk, pour that in gradually.
The spices I used were salt and pepper to taste, and Paprika.
On any spice, you can always add more of it at the end, so go sparingly while in the pan. Paprika is a great spice, a nice hint of color, and a great taste too.
My husband and I loved this dish, he's never had them before and he enjoyed this.
Will definitely be making this again. Thanks Ibby! Really enjoyed it.
Don't save the cooking water. It's not necessary, and just makes for a really runny dish. A tip: Pearl onions are easier to peel if boiled whole with skins on. When done, just pop them out. They will be nice and creamy, and not a pain to peel that way. Use cream in this recipe instead of milk. I'd add a dash of some kind of hot sauce or cayenne to give this dish some pop.
I would add sauted mushrooms next time with a touch of white wine.....
I used fresh onions & snow peas from the garden to make this recipe and it was wonderful. I did not use all the liquid however. 7 cups milk & cooking water just seemed like too much, but maybe it would be okay.
I liked it but I thought it may need a little more flavor... I was thinking maybe add cream instead of milk and add some chives! Other then that it was still good.
This recipe calls for way too much liquid and not nearly enough onions for the amount of sauce. 3 cups liquid TOTAL is all you need.
